Appearing in Wallpaper’s Design Awards 2023 issue (on international newsstands now), the S/S 2023 runway collections set to define the season ahead – Prada to Chanel, Celine to Hermès, alongside rising names that have caught our eye.
Captured by Milan-based photographer Alessandro Furchino Capria – whose images draw inspiration from the composition and light of classical portraiture – and styled by Wallpaper* fashion director Jason Hughes, the series sees S/S 2023’s standout looks in playful juxtaposition with idiosyncratic elements, from space heaters to lightboxes (even a feline companion).
Whether Matthieu Blazy’s sophomore collection for Bottega Veneta, Maximilian Davis’ debut outing at Ferragamo, or Raf Simons’ final collection for his eponymous label, which shuttered late last year, it is our blueprint for dressing in 2023.
